Bottom Line:   
excellent amplifier powerfull & solid as a brickwall.

if you want more details in the music ,try it on triode mode
you loose more than 45 % of power but becomes very transparent.

if you eliminate the negative feedback , the amp becomes completly transparent & natural!!

thr best transformers ever made<<

Bottom Line:   
oh-kay. Why are there no Mcintosh reviews? Just a tantalizing question.
This thing cost me $3500, the second cost $3200. They're both obviously the commemorative issue versions. Anyway, I have had this thing for several months and I love it. It's not the best amp in the world, but man, you'll love it if you get one. I just got another one and using 'em as monos, man that really blows yer socks off. I could hear analog-esque (not analog at all, I am an avid LP listener) from a CD. It seems that my using balanced cables helped,, but not enough. Maybe because I used Synergistic Research RCA Interconnects and used some $200 balanced cables.

Although there might've been a little discrepancy in extreme ranges, the smooth and clear sound of this amp is great. The power is not lacking either, considering I have two, and am using Tannoy 615's.

If you can find one of these, buy it!!!
